With his signature red hat, blue jumpsuit, and facial hair, Mario is one of the most iconic video game characters of all time.
Created by Japanese video game designer Shigaru Miyamoto, Mario is Nintendo’s resident mascot, appearing in over 200 video games since his creation. As the protagonist of the video game series, Mario’s adventures focus on rescuing Princess Peach with the help of his brother and sidekick, Luigi.
But can you imagine Mario without his facial hair? Hard to imagine, right? Well, one user decided to give the internet a mini-heart attack with Mario donning a clean-shaven look:

Next time you repost my edits without permission can you at least give me credit or post it in not trash quality?
